Quirky Tranquility - PhotoHunt

PhotoHunt theme : What is peace and tranquility for you?/ Quirky

tree hotel 1

A quick getaway to Bangkok for some great Thai food and shopping.

Tranquility in a busy city like Bangkok is possible. At a Hong Kong friend's recommendation, we checked out Bangkok Tree House. Situated far from the tourist belt, guests even have to take a ferry to reach this quirky hotel.

Huge ants crawling in my room!

There are only 10 rooms which are all built above ground level. Each room features a different insect on the wall. There's no fridge and no TV. There is chilled water in a fridge in the common area for all guests.

Bed on the roof terrace so you can lay on it and count the stars at night.

Need some peace and quiet?

Looks scary standing on this glass floor.

Oh no .... every time a lady needs to use this loo, she might get nervous.

Enjoy a good view of the greenery outside when having a shower in this bathroom, I don't know whether the peeping Toms consider it as a good view if I am taking my shower. LOL......

    1. The rooms are situated on high floor and face the forest, probably only the monkeys will invade the guests' privacy. :P

    1. Yes, you can see the green plants below. The waste is removed through modern sanitary plumbing, unlike toilets in some rural village.

    1. The giant ants are not painted, they are models of ants glued on the wall :)

  14. Hi ECL, wow what a cool hotel and getaway. Sleeping under the stars would be very tranquil. I must admit that the fake ants crawling over my bed and the glass floor by the loo would make me nervous. :)

    Wonderful photo collection. Have a great weekend.
